Ministry of Care

The Ministry of Care members minister to individuals in our parish community by taking the Eucharist to those confined in hospitals, nursing homes, or in private homes. We will be collecting rosaries, medals, and other small religious articles, including prayer books, for distribution to homebound parishioners and nursing home residents. Containers for theses articles will be located inside the rear entrance of the church.. It is a parishioner-to-parishioner ministry. This group serves whether the care is long-term or short-term. People involved in this ministry are there because they care, and they would like to minister to those who, due to illness or temporary infirmity, could not otherwise attend Volunteers are trained by the Archdiocese in a six week training program. Contact Mike McEvoy (847) 309-7185 or ministryofcare@stmarybg.org
